From the LBB: a negative impact of ($338,700) through the biennium ending August 31, 2019.
The bill would make no appropriation but could provide the legal basis for an appropriation of funds to implement the provisions of the bill, assuming the agency implements the program. The agency is not required to implement the legislation in the absence of an appropriation.
This bill violates our limited government principle by creating a new grant program to cover a federal responsibility. Given that immigration enforcement is a federal issue, it is the federal government's responsibility to adequately train local law enforcement and incur the related costs. For these reasons, we oppose SB 2094.
